Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

People experiencing neck pain turn to chiropractic care for relief. Most swear by chiropractors because they get the much-needed relief after hopping from one medical practitioner to another without relief. At Mitchell L Kaplan, DC, we treat neck pain in Melbourne, FL, using natural remedies that pinpoint the root cause of the pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

The neck consists of numerous nerves, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. It’s not hard to see why you may have neck pain when there are so many things that can get hurt. If any of these structures is affected, you are likely to experience neck pain that sometimes can radiate to the arms and shoulders.

There are many causes of neck pain. The most common include:

  • Whiplash: This injury is common in rear-end accidents where the head snaps back and forth, causing the ligaments, tendons, and muscles to stretch beyond their range of motion. Common symptoms of whiplash include dizziness, headaches, neck pain, and stiffness.
  • Osteoarthritis: The wearing out of the cartilage cushioning the cervical bones causes bones to rub against each other, causing pain and stiffness.
  • Injury: Sports accidents, car accidents, slips, and falls may injure the tendons, ligaments, nerves, and bones in the neck region, leading to pain.
  • Text neck: Staring at digital devices for too long leads to an unnatural posture that puts pressure on the neck, causing pain.
  • Spinal stenosis: The narrowing of the vertebrae column may pinch and trap the nerve roots, causing pain and numbness in the neck, shoulder, and arms.
  • Poor posture: Incorrect posture while sitting or standing may put undue pressure on the neck, causing pain.

If you have neck pain, book an appointment with our chiropractor for pain relief.
